    An NRA Precision Pistol match is a three aggregate match, with 90 shots fired during each aggregate. One aggregate is fired with a .22 rimfire, one with any centerfire 32 caliber or larger, and one with a .45 caliber pistol.  Most competitors use two pistols, one .22 rimfire and one .45 ACP 1911-style, to shoot the entire match.  New competitors often us a 22 for the entire match to get the feel for how things work.  Most use semi-automatic pistols but revolvers can also be used. Slow fire will be at 50 yards using B-6 targets.  Timed and rapid fire will be at 25 yards on turning targets using B-8 targets.   Competitors may fire only one or two of the aggregates if time or physical constraints make this a better option.

    Sight in and practice begins at 9:45AM and the match begins 10:00.   This is an NRA Approved match.

    An NRA Precision Pistol match is a three aggregate match, with 90 shots fired during each aggregate. One aggregate is fired with a .22 rimfire, one with any centerfire 32 caliber or larger, and one with a .45 caliber pistol.  Most competitors use two pistols, one .22 rimfire and one .45 ACP 1911-style, to shoot the entire match.  New competitors often us a 22 for the entire match to get the feel for how things work.  Most use semi-automatic pistols but revolvers can also be used. Slow fire will be at 50 yards using B-6 targets.  Timed and rapid fire will be at 25 yards on turning targets using B-8 targets.   Competitors may fire only one or two of the aggregates if time or physical constraints make this a better option.

    Sight in and practice begins at 9:45AM and the match begins 10:00.   This is an NRA Approved match.

    • This class teaches practical applications for those who carry concealed handguns.  It's a great class for those with new Concealed Carry handgun permits but no follow-up training.  It is NOT the class which qualifies you to obtain a NC Concealed Carry permit.
    • PURPOSE: Provide the student with foundational knowledge on which to build their skills in the art of self-defense with a handgun. Students will leave this course as educated beginners with a tool kit of drills and practical knowledge on which to practice and build up their proficiency.

    • Topics: 

    1. 1. Safety Briefing
    2. 2. Range Commands
    3. 3. Class Philosophy - Mindset, Situational Awareness, training with purpose, efficiency. 
    4. 4. Understanding your Weapon System
    5. 5. Fundamentals of Marksmanship - Stance, Grip, Sight Picture, Trigger Control, Recoil Management, Running the Slide, Press-Check
    6. 6. Drawing from holster and safe re-holstering
    7. 7. Dry-fire and Live-fire drills, including  
    8.      a. Ammunition Management - tactical and emergency reloads. 
    9.      b. Recoil Management
    10.      c. Malfunction Clearing
    11. 8.  Debrief/After-Action Discussion
    • REQUIREMENTS:
    1. An open mind, willingness to take instruction and the ability to challenge pre-conceived notions we’ve all learned from YouTube instructors and Hollywood.  This course teaches only practical, real-world techniques.
    2. A functional, compact or duty-sized semi-automatic handgun with at least five (5) magazines (Glock 19 or larger).  No subcompact (Glock 26, SIG P938) handguns or revolvers permitted.
    3. A strong-side holster with a sturdy belt and multiple-magazine carrier.  Appendix carry, small of back, cross-draw, purses, belly bands and shoulder holsters will not be permitted in this class; however, all these forms of carry will be discussed.  It is more efficient and safer to teach the class with everyone using the same gear.  For safety reasons, no holsters with active retention (SERPA holsters) will be permitted.  A molded Kydex holster manufactured specifically for your model of firearm is highly recommended, but leather holsters are also acceptable.  If you are in doubt, please contact the instructor prior to class.
    4. At least three hundred (300) rounds of factory-loaded, copper-jacketed ammunition.  No reloaded ammunition or steel-core (armor piercing) rounds are permitted.
    5. Red-dot optics are permitted (and in fact encouraged).  Red dot sights should be sighted in at ten (10) yards prior to class.  If you have questions about how to properly sight-in your optic, contact the instructor prior to class.
    6. Weather conditions are often rapidly changing in North Carolina, so please dress appropriately and in layers.  Class is held rain or shine, as you cannot pick the weather for your gunfight.
    7. A packed lunch is recommended – food options are limited in the DPRC area and lunch will be held to a strict 1-hour time limit.
    8. Water, lots of it.  Hydration is important, as this will be an active class.

    North Carolina Service Pistol Championship AND 22 Rimfire Championship.   There will be two 900 aggregate matches run simultaneously using any CMP legal service pistol and ammo or 22 Rimfire EIC pistol and ammo.    You may shoot using either a service pistol or a 22, but not both.   This is being done to accommodate the increased interest in the 22 Rimfire distinguished matches and give the option to shoot a 900 aggregate match using either gun to prepare for the EIC relays to be held immediately following.   Awards will be given in both matches.

       EIC, 22 Rimfire EIC, and DR relays will be held after the match.   These distinguished relays will be combined with relays fired after the NC State Championship match on Sunday.   You may fire in these matches either day, but NOT on both days.

    There will NOT be any sight in practice session before the match.

    • This class teaches practical applications for those who carry concealed handguns.  It's a great class for those with new Concealed Carry handgun permits but no follow-up training.  It is NOT the class which qualifies you to obtain a NC Concealed Carry permit.
    • PURPOSE: Provide the student with foundational knowledge on which to build their skills in the art of self-defense with a handgun. Students will leave this course as educated beginners with a tool kit of drills and practical knowledge on which to practice and build up their proficiency.

    3. A strong-side holster with a sturdy belt and multiple-magazine carrier.  Appendix carry, small of back, cross-draw, purses, belly bands and shoulder holsters will not be permitted in this class; however, all these forms of carry will be discussed.  It is more efficient and safer to teach the class with everyone using the same gear.  For safety reasons, no holsters with active retention (SERPA holsters) will be permitted.  A molded Kydex holster manufactured specifically for your model of firearm is highly recommended, but leather holsters are also acceptable.  If you are in doubt, please contact the instructor prior to class.

    5. Red-dot optics are permitted (and in fact encouraged).  Red dot sights should be sighted in at ten (10) yards prior to class.  If you have questions about how to properly sight-in your optic, contact the instructor prior to class.
    6. Weather conditions are often rapidly changing in North Carolina, so please dress appropriately and in layers.  Class is held rain or shine, as you cannot pick the weather for your gunfight.
    7. A packed lunch is recommended – food options are limited in the DPRC area and lunch will be held to a strict 1-hour time limit.
    8. Water, lots of it.  Hydration is important, as this will be an active class.
